Please send query first at the address below. Send a brief synopsis of your plot (2-3 paragraphs only). If we wish to read your manuscript, we will contact you. We are always interested in reading cozy mysteries (that is, mysteries with engaging characters, intriguing plots, but WITHOUT lots of violence, rough language, or explicit sex). Most of our books run approximately 50,000 to 65,000 words in length.
We work out royalty arrangements with each author on an individual basis depending on circumstances, but typically authors receive all royalties from Kindle sales and CCP retains royalties from other sources. We do not require authors to pay any upfront costs; we cover all the expenses pertaining to printing, cover design, formatting, marketing, and ISBN#.
We offer generous discounts on all Cozy Cat Press books purchased in multiple quantities. Being a very small company, we can't allow returns, but we make every attempt to work with bookstores to provide you with your desired number of copies at a reasonable wholesale price.
We offer a 50% discount to libraries who purchase multiple copies of any of our books. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
